Out of curiosity, how long do they warranty all the work for?

Nice build. We had Trans Am Depot out at Pony Wars last year. They brought several cars and turned a lot of heads. Keep us updated as this is going to be sweet!!

A walkaround on the Solstice. I donated it to the Phoenix Children's Hospital and it was auction at Russo and Steele in January.

I'm surprised no one has built a ZL1 based Trans Am labeled as WS6 or anything.

sbindley,
Outstanding idea..can hardly wait for the final product...TAs were always one of the coolest cars....friend of mine has a 69 TA....He was the bodyshop instructor at IVY TECH that painted our 68 Camaro as a class project in 1988!!..

I believe they have a ZL1 in the shop now undergoing the Transformation. Most of their TA's leave with more power than the ZL1 anyway, and it is a lot of money for pieces that get removed - hood, most body panels, wheels, etc.

I bug them for pics a lot, but there was a long period of blocking and sanding pieces that would not show much progress. Interior pieces were sent out for CF wrap/dipping, upholstery getting stitched, etc. I've been told that most of that is being completed so I should begin to see more real progress as pieces are put back on the car. The wait on the t-tops is from them finishing the development of a 2.0 system they claim will be far better than what they have been doing to this point. I believe I will have the first new version.

After all the tedious stuff (sanding...) will they increase the number of pictures?
